morning, crunch time in the race for the white house. just two days remain before president obama and mitt romney square off in denver for the first of three critical debates. president's being prepped in nevada today. and the gop challenger has some ground to make up because a brand-new "washington post"/abc news poll this morning has the president leading by two percentage points among likely voters. it's not unusual for candidates to try to lower expectations in the days leading up to dedebate. republicans have been playing up the president's eloquence, ever since last week. but it seems somebody forgot to tell new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside down is what he says. in just a few minutes we're going to be talking about wednesday night's debate and

brand-new race. >> so, responding to that the president said governor romney's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> right. >> he was sort of going the other direction. you heard chris christie say it's going to go extraordinarily well. it's going to be turned upside down. it's a restart of the campaign. it's a brand-new race. those are all quotes from that clipate there. is that risky for him to do that? >> look i think he set the bar high for mitt romney. and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he has not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security to protect benefits instead of cutting them. so the bar is really high for him. i think chris christie set it even a little higher. let's be clear, mitt romney is a terrific debater. i mean, he des patched newt gingrich from the race in florida based on debate performances there. did the same -- >> and the president is also a good debater in spite of his pleas that he's just okay. i don't thin

about it, but what the horse race is about the interesting question i think for the romney campaign today is are they going to do anything differently? i mean, they are clearly losing, this is slipping away from him. >> tara, leave it at that. are you going to do anything differently? >> listen, i think we have a great ground game. we are spreading the message far and wide. we are talking about recovery. we are talking about those five principles that will guide this romney/ryan administration relative to trade, economic, small business education and a reformed tax code. those are the things we are talking about. that's what america wants to hear, they want to be on a road to real recovery not four more years of failure. >> tara wall from the romney campaign, thanks for joining us this morning. >> you bet. >>> top call next, victoria's secret racy or racist? the company under fire for the sexy geisha getup, complete with chop sticks, apar rently.

have a brand new cnn/orc national poll and 50% to 47% the president over mitt romney among likely voters. that three-point margin within the sampling error. very tight. we've seen a very tight race in a bunch of the other national polls that came out in the last 24 hours. what about the economy? this is going to be the top issue in this domestic oriented debate tomorrow night. can you get any closer than that? one thing i want to talk about. the gender gap. weaver seen it. and here's a brand new poll from quinnipiac university, another survey in the last hour, not even that. look at that. president with a very large advantage among women voters. in our poll it was a little smaller but the president also had the advantage. mitt romney has an advantage among men but not by as much. >> ten points. not enough to make up for the gap with women. thanks very much for being with us this morning. great to see you in person. >> great to be here. >> in a few minutes sean spicer will join us live. he's the communications director for the republican national committee. >> also ted strickland t

president maintaining a three-point lead with less than a month to go in the race. joining us is republican congressman jason from the great state of utah. how are you feeling tonight? >> good morning. >> when is the last time you spoke to mitt romney, the candidate, and how is he doing? >> it's been a little time with him last week. i haven't seen him today but i have been with him during the primary season before debates. you know, when you spend that hour sitting in the holding room, it's interesting to see how they reacted. mitt romney's a real cool character. loosy goose. you know, 15, 16 people sitting in the room, just chatting about various things. i think it will probably be very similar tonight. >> let's run through what some of the morning papers, op-eds, especially conservative feedback has been. ross -- he wrote an op-ed in the new york times and he says, the assumption the wealthy republican candidate is inevitably a candidate for the wealthy as well is a big part of what's been killing romney's campaign. because of the president's advantages with minority voters an
